GSCC Update - March 31, 2021
 
From the Lead Pastor:


The Wondrous Cross
Chalice Hymnal 209

"When I survey the wondrous cross
on which the Prince of glory died,
my richest gain I count but loss,
and pour contempt on all my pride."

God be praised for the wondrous cross, the tree of life,
which bears upon itself the scars and wounds of the world,
yet heals the sick, brings hope to the desperate,
and comforts the oppressed.

God be praised for the cross, which guides the lost,
feeds the hungry, and shelters the poor;
inspires the anxious, illumines the wise,
and challenges the fearless;
saves the condemned, and meets the need
of every age and every land.

God forbid that we should glory,
except in the cross of Jesus Christ our Lord.

"When I survey the wondrous cross
on which the Prince of glory died,
my richest gain I count but loss,
and pour contempt on all my pride."


    - Inspired by a sermon of John Mbiti, Uganda 1972
